Eats and drinks galore!

Tenth annual Savannah International Food and Wine Festival on Saturday, September 8 from 4 to 7 PM at 14 West Anderson St., St. Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church.  About 50 wines will be available and signature dishes from at least a dozen of Savannah’s most popular restaurants, plus a silent auction. Tickets $30 in advance or $35 at the door.  The proceeds of this festival benefit the many local, regional and national charities of the Greek Ladies Orthodox Philoptochos Society as well as their local scholarship fund.  Sounds like a terrific bargain and lots of fun to us.  Cheers!

Cocktails at the Sparetime

Once upon a time, from the 1940’s through most of the 1970’s, the Cocktail Hour before dinner was sacrosanct.  Most everyone had their favorite cocktail and they sipped it or two of it or more, before dinner nightly.  Today, the passion for those delicious delights seems to be returning nationwide. Here in Savannah, the Sparetime is rapidly becoming a cocktail hot spot. Two of their specialties: The Hemingway Daiquiri ($9), made with Denizen Rum, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Lime Juice and Grapefruit Juice, toasts the classic Caribbean cocktail named after Ernest Hemingway who allegedly threw back a whopping 16 of them in Cuba.*         The Mai Tai ($10), made with Denizen Rum, Cruzan Amber Rum, Orange Curacao, Orgeat, Lime Juice, and Lemon Hart 151, represents the resurgence of tiki drinks, which saw their heyday in the postwar era. Invented by the Godfather of Tiki, “Trader Vic” Bergeron, this simple sour variation will whisk customers away to a far flung land.  Happy Sipping!
